Worker exposures to health hazards caused by aluminum foundry operations were surveyed at Ventura Metal Arts, Incorporated, (SIC- 3361) in Salt Lake City, Utah, on November 6, and December 16, 1968. No mechanical exhaust ventilation was present. A nonexhaust ventilated canopy hood was provided above the melting furnace.
